Guessing you aren't a fan of Halo 2 or 3? Golden eye? Perfect Dark? Unreal Tournament? Gears of War? Or the best of all, Shadowrun? Other popular shooting games where you start fresh every game?
I enjoy playing with friends and the joy of winning.

Never played multiplayer in any of the games you listed. I tried multiplayer in halo 3 when it first came out and hated it, Haven't played a halo multiplayer game since. I don't play multiplayer or pvp to win, I play for fun, usually when drunk or stoned, and to just unlock shit. If playing just to win I wouldn't play pvp at all.

I feel like Praxus is just trolling all of us hard. I wasn’t quite sure, til the comment about never playing a card game9

Other than solitaire, nope, I've never had any interest in trying card based games. Ive never pkayed poker, or bridge, or whatever. I couldn't even get into pokemon ccg or the like.

PSA ... just got my (10) Forza 7 Instant Win sweepstakes keys today, literally the day before you will no longer be able to redeem them. I purchased the game on 10/4 and just got them today. Of course, I won nothing. Further adding insult to injury, I believe the grand prize winners have already been drawn (saw 3 winner's names bannered for it on Bing Rewards.) And I still am waiting for my 5,000 Xbox Reward points for purchasing. So if you were waiting on your 10 keys, might be worth checking if hadn't recently.

Thanks, Just saw this post again while browsing tonight and it reminded me to go play one last time. I just won the V.I.P with tonight's last key. I had previously won the driver gear and hoonigan pack.

No idea what happened with the political stuff, must've all been mod-deleted O_o


Last key is up.  Last loss for me.  37 total.  lol


Now I can close that tab so it doesn't mock me.

Wish I had known sooner here, got 29 keys. This ends in a little over 7 hours from now for those that forgot.


Thanks for the Forza reminder, I had 6 keys to use and got a Hoonigan pack.

My last key ended up being a win a lil bit ago :whee: got the 1 month XBL code here

Rarely am I lucky with contests so this was a nice change for once, won the VIP pass & Hoonigan pack earlier this month and the Driver Gear on my 1st key last month

Solitaire? Shocker.

It's what came pre-installed with Windows Vista, which is still one of the only games on my 12yo pc. And out the guys I'm "friends" with only one plays games, and he's just into Battlefield 1, so not a lot of actual gaming going on.

Weekend is almost here. I Almost want to go see "The Snowman" just because it's getting destroyed by critics and for some reason they decided to name Michael Fassbender's character "Harry Hole" and it's somehow meant to be taken seriously.

I've always preferred games where everyone has the same options, and it's not a matter of who has dedicated the most time/money to the game.


Hence why Goldeneye 64 and Rainbow Six 3 are my all time favorite MP games.

I'm with you man. I mostly lurk anymore, but I still read this thread every day. I avoid the news on TV and I try to avoid it online when possible, I just never thought I'd have to read political bullshit in a gaming forum unless it's in relation to the actual politics of the story of a game.


I like off topic discussion as much as anyone else, but if multiple people are asking for a subject to be dropped, common sense says stfu and move on. Can we please discuss deals, cat memes or games in general again and leave the politics for somewhere else?

          Believe it or not that's where these neofascist got started, gaming sites. Bannon got his ideas on how to push his nazi agenda when he started one those companies that do gold mining for players. A lot of them are paid trolls. They're paid not to win arguments but to cause division among working class people. I don't want to get into detail, but you can look it all up. It's best to ignore these alt-right trolls.  He got his ideas when he met these virgins sitting in Moms basement hating life, It donned on him he could motivate these rejects. Ignore them, they're a small, tiny, tiny percentage of Americans...loud they may be. Don't expect gaming sites to not be infected with their filth....naive.

Fallout 4 DLC is ok to have preinstalled. They have level checks before they become available. Such as when you hit level 15, then you get a radio broadcast. Then I usually wait to level up a little more then do it.

I haven't played Witcher 3 to compare (sorry)

Too many good games coming out. I am taking an official vow of cheap-assery - I’m not spending another dime on games until Black Friday sales. Only exception is if Blood Bowl II legendary goes $20 or less.

OK, some of you might like this non-political OT batner, bear with me... Been busy, getting ready for Cider this weekend and three trees had branches filled with apples, it's the most I've ever seen in our little apple orchard, break right off due to high wind recently. SO lol first tree was fairly easy to work on as the branch was rotten, fallen onto the ground, onto the fence and we cut up half the tree salvaging the other part, you know where you have a V in an apple tree at the base. Second one was a bit higher (it seriously was like a videogame, this is the just a bit harder level lol) so we used the little teeth saw attached to an aluminum pole. After many back and forths it finally cut through it and it came down. Alright third tree is much bigger (higher level, way more difficult), and although we could reach with the saw pole I decide, alright since it broke and is still hanging on barely, why don't we try to pull the branch down. After many attempts with a tractor and a rope - Redneck Youtube video right - attached around the branch the thing finally broke off. Many many tire marks/ruts in the ground lol. There's always something to do on the farm it seems. Alright, I caught up on this thread and wanted to say:

Meh...I like games where you have incentives to actually play, like loot, xp, currency, unlocks, etc...this just seems completely pointless without any of that. I get it's a beta, but blah.

You just described Fortnite, the base game, Save the World game mode... ... which is 40% off right now - hey that magic number!


I just can't, I can't believe you felt obliged to give the game a 1 star because you didn't like it. I mean if you play and fall through the world with a game altering glitch I might see someone going out of their way to rate a game the lowest rating but the fact that you just didn't like it so 1 star? W.T.F. That reminds me I need to write up a review for the game and it's not going to be a 1.


F Off, Fortnite is a great game. You just played the free add-on that's directly related to PUBG (and Battle Royale in general)'s popularity. If you suck you can always try your hand with the Team version. I would find it was a hit or miss soloing but it's highly enjoyable playing in a duo or team mode.


I'm amazed with the community you can get in this game. Sure a few times there might be people that don't want to team play and try to do their own thing ultimately failing the objective but most of the time you can get paired up with some really good folks. In Save the World you need to have teamwork to go up against the hordes of zombie husks and some form of sportsmanship also helps.

I feel you bro. I bought Digital Video Poker and it sucked! I've played blackjack, but they gave me too many cards and the numbers didn't add up at all. Then, I come to find out that I wasn't even playing for money the whole time, but in game currency you can only spend on deck backs? Where are the upgrades and progression for automatic card counting and xray vision? I gave it zero stars and sold the addresses of the devs to spam bots.


Thank you Brannigan, I needed that after a tough work day today. Which, you guessed it, was unwound playing Fortnite tonight lol.

The Rocket League thing sucks that you can only get 3 decryptors the whole event.

Luckily for them I threw another $5 in Micro transactions there way.

Though RL is still the only game I've put any money in for MT. I've spent many, many hours and I only paid $20 for the game. So I give them more money.

Any pvp game you start out with nothing, but earning all the crap is what makes me want to play more than one match before uninstalling a game. One match was enough for me to uninstall Fortnite and give it a bad review on the Xbox. Cosmetics doesn't make want to grind out a character, it's upgrading the character, unlocking skills, unlocking weapons or mods. Starting at zero every new match is just mind numbingly dull to me. The single player did sound interesting, but after seeing how bad they designed their pvp I'm not willing to give them a chance by giving them my money for it.

I understand where you're coming from, and I think that's why I like PUBG (I've only played two rounds of fortnite). I play so many games where I can choose from a long list of equipment or mods and die 20 times in a match with no consequence, and these games change it up and add a new challenge. Since you seemed unsure when quoting someone else they're called battle royale games based on the Japanese book, manga and movies from the early 2000s where students scrounge for weapons and have to fight each other.

Their base game is supposed to go free eventually, so you can try it out then without giving any money. Their PvP they didn't really "design" more so than copy and pasted one of the most popular games currently.

Just logged back in XBL rewards after a while, I didn't realize how shit it was for us europeans. First VIP star is 300€ (300$ in the US), which means we have to spend about 20% more if I'm not too sleepy. And we get less money too, I went to check my last deposit (july 2016) and I got 1.22€ for 1500 points, so less than the 1.50$ an US user would've gotten.


It's been a while since I got mad at MS for not caring about non-US players :)

Use code ACKA5FPK by 10/22/2017 @12am.


That's kinda crappy Microsoft would do that to Europe. You would think the company has enough money to make it equal across all boards. My only guess would be it cost more to have servers over there? Otherwise there is really no excuse.


Looking forward to trying Raid WW2 today! All those mediocre reviews have me excited!  :D/


Edit: 20% off Rakuten site with code flash20. Makes xbl cards $100->$80 or $50->$40. Slick link

Really tempted to load up on that Xbox credit and attempt to buy an Xbox One X from Microsoft but not sure how much faith I have in getting one on release day

Edit: Screw it I did it. Have enough random email address laying around including my wife's that I can do it. Even if it's not a Scorpio edition on day 1 I suppose it won't kill me. $100 savings is much better than that tiny bit of green text.

Forum etiquette dictates that lurkers really have no right to complain about shit.

I disagree. I mainly only post when I have something positive to add to the conversation which isn’t often. But, I have been known to give out some free stuff on here from time to time to pay it back to the community.

I like the yaoi in The Fractured But Whole. Especially blossoming (or was it opening?) lotus. I enjoyed my reaction both mentally and emotionally, and found it interesting that that they held positive mental and emotional content without any sexual content for me.

I think these make a profound statement about social norms and acceptance of those different from ourselves. Often times I think South Park's humor has made clear the absurdity and irrationality of parts of American culture & society.

I don’t even consider myself an achievement whore considering I almost never 100% a game but I can’t bring myself to buy games without achievements.
